Auan, a seven-year-old female cat, licks the body of Jeena, a
three-year-old male mouse, at a farmer's house in the central province
of Phichit, 450 km (281 miles) north of Bangkok on August 7, 2002. The
animals owners say Auan found Jeena three years ago and has been his
playmate and protector, including warding off dogs, since then.
